Wake Up Pakistan Islamabad took place on Sunday 31st Jan 2010. On Thursday the Khatme Nabuwat movement along with top scholars of Islamabad arranged a Press conference against Zaid Hamid. They called upon the govt to stop Wake up Pakistan and to ban him from entering educational institutes. The reason was that Zaid Hamid was the first Caliph of Yousaf Kazab a false prophet who was sentenced to death in the year 2000.

I took the press statement to our brothers in Shifa Collage of medicine who were organizing an Islamic Conference on 6th and 7th of Feb. Zaid Hamid was invited to the conference. The brothers got very much worried as I had raised a severe opposition to inviting Zaid Hamid.

 My demand was very simple that he gives a press statement sending lanat on Yousaf Kazab the False prophet and I will have no objection to him coming to any event.

Brother Ahmed Malik, Yousf Raza, Ali and a few other students from our collage went to meet Zaid Hamid on Friday. They had thought that Zaid Hamid is a great scholar and Champion of Islam and he will send 100 lanats on yousf kazab and the likes of him. However they were quiet shocked when Zaid Hamid started to give them proofs about how Yousf Ali was a great scholar and a sufi saint and how Deobandi Mullahs got him killed.

He said “Boys was I wrong when I said that I don’t know any Yousf Kazab… I knew Yousf Ali… Lots of people knew Yousf Ali”.

He also told our friends to make a video and show it to all the people in shifa so that they may know the truth about Yousf Ali. I have seen the Video and have told in detail of what ever was shown it to the elders of Khatme nabuwat. It is a 58 min video however Zaid Hamid took 2 hours trying to explain to our boys that Yousf Ali was a great sufi….

 Any way I took a few Ulema to Wake up Pakistan. Wither Wake Up Pakistan woke up Pakistan or not is another question, it did woke up the khatme nabuwat movement. After seeing the extent of support of Zaid Hamid’s fitna and the open display of Vulgarity which was a hallmark of the conference, our elders decided to present a firm resistance to this challenge.

 One of the Scholars who was coming to the Shifa conference was Dr Israr Ahmed. Zaid Hamid kept on saying that Dr Israr is with me and we coordinate our activities bla bla bla.

So a few of our students went to him they told him that Zaid Hamid is propagating Yousf Kazabs message to our students and he is taking his name. A member of Dr Isrars Tanzeem e Islami was also present there and he showed him Zaid Hamid pictures with Dr Israr and said that he got them from his friend who became involved with Zaid Hamid after he showed him those pictures. Zaid Hamid told his friend that it’s the same thing wither you work for him or Dr Israr.

 Dr Israr said that he only met Zaid Hamid twice. Once he called Zaid to his place and the other time Zaid invited him. When Dr Israr visited him, he told him that some children want to have their picture taken with Dr Sahib and that’s how he got those photos of him and Dr Israr. Dr Israr thanked our comrades a lot for informing him about this. In the mean while a lot of people with in Tanzeem e Islami started to show their disgust for Zaid hamid.

The Khatme Nabuwat Ulema also met Dr Israr and he apologized for being associated with Zaid Hamid. Dr Israr told the Khatm e nabuwat people that agencies are supporting zaid to create “deeni Ghayarat” in our people. I am aware that the majlis e shura of tanzeem e Islami did meet on this issue.

 Kahtm e nabuwat also met Mufti Kamaludeen, a professor at LUMS university who was a speaker on the Shifa conference. Mufti Kamal ud deen assured his support against this evil. On 7th after the conference Mufti Kamal ud deen met Dr Waqas, a doctor in Shifa who was also a speaker in the conference as well as brothers who were associated with the conference. Mufti Kamal and Dr Waqas then met Zaid Hamid, and it was decided that Zaid will no longer be invited to any of Shifa’s functions until he repents his beliefs.

Zaid Hamid said in the video that Lashkar e Taiyyaba people provided security to the Wake up Karachi conference. I personally saw Lashkar cadre at wake up Islamabad. I contacted my friends in jamat ud dawa and really gave them a piece of my mind for being associated with this sacrilege. They were very apologetic.

 Yesterday, 14 feb 2010, while I was on my walk I received a message on my cell to come immediately to Jamat ud Dawa headquarters in Islamabad. A conference was going on I took a seat at the back as a expected another boring lecture by a salafist mullah.

However the speaker was a mujahid named Abu Haider who had spent 13 years in jail in India and was a senior leader of Jamat ud dawa. He talked about how a fitna of Zaid hamid is endangering Islam. He said in the speech that Zaid Hamids secretary came to their Head Quarters but they kicked him out.

He said “We know who is supporting him…they are very ‘naik’ people with good intentions but they don’t realize that he is a snake and he will bite us all”

After the conference I met the guy who was giving the lecture as well as other coordinators of that event. They told me that they hope I was satisfied now. I replied in the affirmative. I asked the guy as to who really are the ‘naik’ people who are supporting Zaid Hamid.

 Abu Haider replied: “ ISI… I met their officer and told him that why are you supporting him (zaid hamid) so much. He replied that we want to create ‘deeni Ghayarat’ in people.

 So I told him that it would have been better had you used a Christian… when satan wants to entrap a mullah he uses a mullah… our people did provide security but it was at a very low level, our leadership did not know of this and we took a stern notice against this”

 Brother Ali who is a year junior to me in Shifa wanted the ulema to meet Zaid hamid. However our scholars told me that they have a clear stance… Zaid Hamid is a murtid and a Gushtakh e Rasool and it would be an insult to go and meet him. Zaid Hamid should come to the ulema, apologies for his transgressions to Allah and renew his Faith. Only then will he be acceptable.

This, brothers and sisters is a very very small highlight of the struggle which took place against this evil. I have left out many many parts as this tale has not yet reached its conclusion. Pray to Allah that his deen be victorious in Islamabad, Lahore, Sawat, Waziristan, Afghanistan and every place where the forces of truth and falsehood are in conflict.


  1. Hamid Siddiqui said,

    ZH tried to clarify his position in his videos about yusuf ali’s relationship with him. In what part did he deny the finality of Prophet Muhammad Salla Allahu Alaihi Wassallam??

    Don’t oppose a person just because some popularity seeking mullah’s (ulemaa soo) are against his movement. They only want to make Pakistan stronger and establish Shariah in Pakistan. Am assuming that you also want that…or maybe I’m wrong and you guys have ulterior motives….

    • Safi Ahmed said,

      Today I was in Dora-e-Tarjuma-e-Quran with Engr Usman Ali of Tanzeem-e-Islami at Orient Lawn, Karachi. He said the top 3 sins in sight of Allah are:

      1. Shirk with Allah
      2. Being bad to parents
      3. Slandering someone

      I sincerely hope the brothers who wrote this article aren’t engaging in the 3rd sin.

      Also, in his most recent interview Zaid Hamid clearly says that whoever Muslim who calls any other Muslim (except Qadianis) as non-Muslim must face death penalty.

  6. Muhammad younis said,

    Brother you people have made us psychic, you have brought Dr Israr (r.a) in between,if you are right then why is zaid hamids bayan still present on tanzeem site.and can you tell us how is he gustakh as i need to know it coz i am from kashmir and can’t judge him rightly

  7. Raja Nadeem said,

    Salam to every one! i have not followed all what is about Zaid sb and his mentors, however, as far as ISI thing, i think it fake. ISI could not invoke the so called deeni ghairat in the armd forces, how come they are so interested in doing so for the nation and why. it could be done by already established organizations easily then why involve a person with a bad repute. this seems to be made up story. moreso, sufiism is not easy to understand, as it cannot be explained how jasmiene smells to someone who has never smelled it or the taste of orange juice cannot be explained to the one who has never tasted it, like wise tasawuf cannot be explained, it can only be experienced.
